New Tunes 3.5.2024

Hello music lovers! ๐ŸŽถ

New and fresh songs by well-known and lesser-known artists are here! A selection of #newtunes for our listening pleasure for the weekend and beyond!

I hope you had a good time on Labor Day, whoever is celebrating. If you don't like any of the music just skip it. And one more thing - at the end of this post you can vote for the song you liked the most. So far this works in two front ends - Ecency and Peakd.

Dead Pony - Cobra

I mentioned Scottish band Dead Pony two weeks ago, and that's a second single from their debut album Ignore This. QOTSA and NIN in the one package, with a great female vocal and crazy controlled instrumentals behind. I'm sure we'll hear more of them soon.

Iron & Wine - Anyone's Game

Iron & Wine, or Samuel Beam, is an American singer, composer, and songwriter. He has been performing since 2002 and has released six studio albums to date. The latest, Light Verse, was released at the end of April this year. The song Anyone's Game is the first single from this album. I've heard of him before, but this is the first time I've listened to him, I don't know exactly where to put him, yet he seems most similar to universal musicians like Paul Simon or Peter Gabriel. Tones, sounds, noises, melodies, and rhythms from all over the world.

Kamasi Washington - Dream State (feat. Andrรฉ 3000)

Kamasi Washington is an American tenor saxophonist who has found his way in jazz, won several international music awards, collaborated extensively with other musicians and bands, and released seven studio albums to date, and just today his seventh studio album, Fearless Movement, is released, from which this song is featured, in which he collaborates with the multi-instrumentalist Andree3000 (better known as one half of the duo Outkast), on flute and electronics. A superb timeless, meditative psychedelic jazzy hip-hop and whatnot mix of sounds and melodies to be listened to, not discussed.

London Grammar - House

London Grammar is an English indie pop-rock band, active since 2009, with four albums released to date, most recently The Greatest Love. The song House is a subtle, dramatic, and unsettling dream pop song with a lot of dark exuberance and is about home.

The Libertines - Merry Old England

I mentioned The Libertines a few weeks ago when their latest album, All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade, came out. And here they are again with a new single from that album, Merry Old England, about the consequences of the migrant crisis in England.

Sahra Halgan - Qaram qalafe

Sahra Halgan is a Somali singer and cultural activist. She emigrated to France because of the war and started her music career there. She has released five albums to date, most recently Hiddo Dhawr at the end of March this year. Her music mixes various African musical influences with European, indie pop and electronic music. She has found her niche, it seems to me.

David Gilmour - The Piper's Call

As a Pink Floyd fan, I can't help but mention David Gilmour and his latest song, The Piper's Call. This is a teaser for his fifth solo album, Luck And Strange, which will be released in September this year. Although 78 years old, he is still persevering and writing new music. A lot of people don't like all this, but I hear in all these new songs of his that nostalgia and youthful memories that I had listening to early Pink Floyd and later. But I do get the feeling that he is burdened with getting older, at least in this song he keeps mentioning some eternal youth :) It's definitely a song for fans.

Mark Knopfler - Two Pairs Of Hands

Finally, another guitar master, Mark Knopfler, with his new album, One Deep River. Every great guitarist has, you could say, a fingerprint, in the sense that when you hear a piece of music somewhere, on the radio, you somehow identify it. His magic fingers are still able, after many years, to realize a combination of hypnotic/soothing/nostalgic, seemingly simple music that can be described as a daily antibiotic. The calm, joy, and poise of a seasoned musician in no hurry to get anywhere.

๐ŸŽถThat's all for today, and enjoy your weekend and holidays with new songs!

You are well aware of the delay in reaction time. But at the weekend, when there is a shortage of places at the big table on the terrace, I do miss a couple of hours. About your music tips. I had to smile at your assessment of Dead Pony, who I actually like quite a lot: "crazy controlled instrumentals". The reader has to think about it a little bit longer. ๐Ÿค” With Iron & Wine the focus is clearly on what the title promises - Light Verse. What I really admire about Kamasi Washington is his constant attempt to use jazz to appeal to people who have so far ignored this style of music. Highly recommended! ๐Ÿ‘ I had already suspected that London Grammar had retired. But - thankfully - I was wrong. Interesting what Hannah Reid has to say: "my place, my house and my rules". There does not seem to be much room for compromise ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Could it possibly be that Doherty and Barรขt are getting on in years and have therefore become surprisingly quieter? I've heard better songs from the Libertines in the past. Conclusion: not bad - but could be better. ๐Ÿ™„ **David Gilmour is well known for his love of setting the lyrics of Polly Samson to music. However, a long collaboration does not always lead to a satisfactory result. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Where Mark Knopfler is on the label, there is Mark Knopfler inside. The Scots seem to have good genes. Because 75 and so relaxed. Not everyone can do that. The whole thing sounds relaxed, warm, cosy, bluesy, folky, soulful - but rarely really adventurous or even experimental ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Ž.

These are some really good suggestions of tunes. I loved Two Pairs of hands. Thanks for sharing these with us Buddy ๐Ÿ˜ have a nice day ๐Ÿ’ž
